Did anyone watch friday night fights? Yuriokis Gamboa scored a brutal one punch firts rd knock out over Al Seeger.

This kid may be ready for a title shot by the end of the year.

Impressive stuff from Gamboa...great talent

The thing about Gamboa is that he doesn't show up with a plan. I mean against a guy like the one he beat yesterday he won't need one, but you saw what happened against Jimenez. He didn't look all that impressive, he merely relies on his talent and expects it to bail him out of any situation. I can see a good boxer keeping away with a solid jab. Anyway, Gamboa does not look invincible to me.

It was a good, TV friendly KO by Gamboa, and all credit to him. He needed one after the comparatively lackluster performance that he turned in against Darling Jiminez. But lets keep it in perspective, that this guy Seeger had just come off two straight losses at 122 and got KO'ed by a 130 pounder. Call it expert matchmaking from a promoter who knew he needed to throw a few logs on the Gamboa wildfire.

That's right, get in there against less than stellar fighters and he will knock them out and have them appear on the high light reel. It's like with Roy Jones, he was so talented he could look spectacular against guys like Sosa, Byrd and all of them but against solid opposition he went 12 boring rounds. Gamboa at least looks more entertaining, he throws more punches and has already been dropped twice. But he has no gameplan, like Jones Jr he neglects the body and showboats too much.

One thing that I did notice right from the start was that Gamboa was keeping his hands up unlike in the Jiminez fight.

I believe the kid is the real deal as long as he doesn't let things ge to his head I think he'll do big things in this sport.

I hope so too, he has the flash needed to bring in the big crowds.

What was the other fight than the Jimenez one in which Gamboa was down? Ive followed his career pretty focused since his debut and I thought that was his only visit on the canvas!?

I also noticed him holding his hands up at the beginning of the Seeger fight, but I dont think he will really get used to that. He said thats always been his flaw since the amateur days and I cant imagine he will be able to get that fixed at this point of his career. But alright, that doesnt make him less exciting.

He gto dropped by some Brazilian guy. It was more of a slip but the ref counted it as a kd. If he would have had his ahnds up though, he wouldn't have given the impression that he got caught. I think with his quickness he can afford to keep em down, that being said it still increases the probability he'll get caught.
